How long will it take for my hair to start growing again?

Understandably, this is a question that we get a lot at our clinic, and the truth is there isn’t one simple answer. The regrowth stage is often different with each patient, depending on a number of factors. Even though you may well notice a difference immediately after your surgery, the regrowth process has to happen naturally and for this reason it can often take up to a year before your hair is fully grown. Don’t worry though; you will see your hair growing on a daily basis before it reaches its fullest.
